Creative confetti - the ultimate guide to a fun, photogenic confetti photograph

Some of the most amazing, spontaneous, photogenic moments at a wedding often happen when the couple just married and are in a flurry of confetti!

Whilst now it’s a fun moment for guests to toss confetti in the air, the tradition actually started in Italy when throwing petals or rice at the happy couple was a sign of prosperity and fertility.

Whilst researching for your wedding day, you’ll no doubt have spent a lot of time on the internet looking at local suppliers in Nottingham, Derby and the East Midlands.

During our consultations, we love to meet up in person, grab some coffee (and cake - Dave can’t resist a piece of cake!) and have a chat. Usually couples get in contact via Facebook, email or phone and sharing their wedding date and location as part of the enquiry. Once we’ve checked if we’re available for your big day, we’ll arrange a time and date to meet you both for a chat and a free, no-obligation pre-wedding photo-shoot.
